Hi there... your first example isn t copied. The board template is the same but the focus and the questions are very different. So in this case I would say that it is not copied at all.

The second example again they have used a board game template, but each question seems to be original and not copied. I have seen many board game templates for free on the web so I cannot say if the grid is copied... but from what I see the content HAS NOT been copied.

The third one, again is a template BUT ALL CONTENT from what I can see HAS NOT BEEN COPIED.

So this member has used simple board game templates, which lets be honest you can find everywhere and it is the CONTENT that matters here....And their content is in no way even close to the content from other board games using the same template.
So while they "could have or should have" asked if it was OK to use the template from other members who have used it, my personal opinion is that we cannot accuse them of stealing as the content is original.

Your last one gives a direct web link, which is great. Because when a definite link is given it is easy to see what has been copied.

Please don t think I am supporting people who copy, I am someone who hates it. But in this instance I really don t think the board game examples should be hung out to dry.... the blatantly copied website though, absolutely and it should be reported.

I have one question for you.How much do you teachers get per month(I mean your payment)

To anchal 25:
Before accusing someone think twice(in Russia we say 7 times but two are better than nothing). As for me I have a game which looks the same though I made the boarders myself(I just saw it somewhere and then tried to repeat). Boarders and pictures and clipart never mattered that much - we aren t teachers of drawing, you know! Our aim is language though some people tend to forget about that!
To daxa:
And why are you asking? Rather a strange question, isn t it?(not a very polite thing to ask I would say but maybe it s different in your environmentSmile)

Hi, there. I try to enter as many times I can to this page because I love it. It is great help and I really appreciate that. But what I have seen a lot,are people saying that other people copy many things. I know it should be reported because it is not fair, but shouldn t we leave them o decide what kind of people they want to be? I guess that if they copy something they know that is not correct. So, what I mean, let s be happy sharing our information and become a great help among us.

daxa you are completely right!!! i think is time consuming and all we do is to be in a bad mood because of all these "stolen" things!! And as Monig said let them decide what kind of people they want to be!!!

As teachers we can create and inspire ...
